Last Tuesday the Steering Group held our final meeting of the year. There were 3 main items on the agenda. Unfortunately, at the last minute, our RCAN consultant sent her apologies. We’ve agreed to meet separately to finalise plans for consultation events next February.
The 2nd item was to discuss a paper on the pros & cons of Incorporation. This was prepared by Ben (a solicitor on our Steering Group) and his recommendation was that the Forum should establish a CIC (a Community Interest Company) to help raise funds and build our credibility as an organisation who intends play a part in developing our area in the long term.
We will present a paper to the AGM to explain our recommendation and seek members’ endorsement.
Which leads neatly to the last item discussed – planning our AGM in January
